If your answer is any of these, or all of these, you’ve found a home at the Palazzo Law Firm. Our Gretna law office has been serving the people of New Orleans for more than 25 years and has amassed a strong record of results in that time. Among our legal team, you’ll find former insurance defense counsel as well as former prosecutors and law enforcement personnel. This means we know how the other side thinks and operates, and we start off understanding your case from the inside out.

We are a small firm that takes a personal, hands-on interest in every client, but we also have the resources and ability to take on the biggest cases. Whatever your legal needs, you’ll find they can be met by the lawyers at the Palazzo Law Firm.

Personal Injury

Louisiana law allows accident and injury victims to recover compensation for their medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering and other legal damages when they are harmed by the negligence of another. But the burden lies with you to bring your case and prove that the other party was negligent and caused your injury and damages. Their insurance company will fight back by offering unrealistic, low settlements or reducing their liability by claiming your own negligence caused or contributed to your injury. We know all the insurance company tricks and tactics, and we won’t stand for them. Our New Orleans personal injury lawyers are willing to go to court when necessary to get the most for our clients. We aren’t just here to pick up a quick check and move on to the next case. You can count on us to see you get appropriate medical care and the full amount of compensation that is coming to you. Call the Palazzo Law Firm after any personal injury in New Orleans, including:

  • Car Wrecks
  • Truck Crashes
  • Motorcycle Accidents
  • Premises Liability
  • Construction Accidents
  • Maritime Accidents
  • Brain Injuries
  • Wrongful Death

Medical Malpractice

Doctors, nurses and other medical professionals are held to a certain standard of care and competence, and when their negligence or other failures fall below that standard, they can and should be held liable for the harm they have caused. With decades of experience in New Orleans medical malpractice claims, our skilled and knowledgeable trial attorneys will be thoroughly prepared for the medical review panel and ready to take your case to the next level. Call the Palazzo Law Firm after any form of medical mistake has caused you injury, including:

  • Birth Injuries
  • Surgical Errors
  • Medication Errors
  • Misdiagnosis Errors
  • Emergency Room Errors

Criminal Defense

Some people get arrested after they make an error in judgment, but they find themselves charged with serious crimes and facing penalties far out of proportion to any mistakes they may have made. Other times, people find themselves the victims of police mistakes, charged with crimes when the prosecution doesn’t have the evidence it needs to make a case. A bedrock of our society is that people are innocent until proven guilty, and the burden is on the state to prove that guilt beyond a reasonable doubt before a person should be convicted of any crime. Our New Orleans criminal defense lawyers mount a strong defense in the pursuit of justice and our clients’ constitutional rights to a fair trial and effective counsel, and we have a record of success in the courtroom you can put your faith in. Call the Palazzo Law Firm for help with any of the following:

  • DWI
  • Drug Charges
  • Driver’s License Suspension
  • Expungements
  • Theft Crimes
  • First Offender Defenses
